What is TRADITIONAL French Cooking?

Often seen as refined and complicated, French cuisine might seem intimidating to some.
However, homemade French food is very different from food served in many French restaurants.
Most traditional recipe come from the countryside and were prepared by women who were busy working in the fields, in factories or running houses and had little time to cook fancy food.
There is often a story behind each of these recipes, and each region in France has its own traditional dishes.

Anne Sophie Dubois comes from a French family where cooking and enjoying food is a serious business.
Everyone in her family cooks and recipes are regularly exchanged. both she and her husband were brouht up in wine regions in France and learned soon that matching the right wine with the right food is an important part of a perfect meal.

When she arrived in Australia, Anne-Sophie Dubois brought with her that heritage, and she decided to write a French cookbook, focused on countryside and family meals.

The Loire Valley

With its fair share of beautiful places to visit, the Loire Valley is a region rich with history and culture, but one of the best ways to truly experience it is by tasting its delicious cuisine. Known as the garden of France, the Loire Valley is a fertile region renowned for its mild climate. Fruits and vegetables thrive; fresh water fishes abound in the many rivers and lakes; game is plenty; winemaking dates back to the 1st century and cheese comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Therefore it is not surprising that it became the favourite residence of French kings and their court during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
